The live load reduction is available for the GSE steel, concrete, aluminum, and wood modules. The live load reduction will be applied to the columns of the structure.
Live loads can be automatically reduced according to the selected method. The software computes the live load reduction factor (LLRF) that will reduce the effective axial compression force in columns.
To improve productivity of GSE Timber users, a new type of wood shearwall anchorage has been added. Continuous Tie Down Systems and their effects on the shearwall properties are now available in the GSE software. Standard libraries of continuous tie down rods are also readily available.
